New Boat Pontoon Operational at Two Rocks Marina

Boat launching and retrieval waiting times during peak periods at Two Rocks Marina will be reduced with the recent completion of a new 18 meter landing pontoon at the facility.

Department of Transport (DoT) Director Project Delivery Cameron Smith said that the new 18 meter pontoon, located 75 meters north of the recently expanded boat ramp, would be primarily used for passenger drop off and pick up but also as a temporary vessel holding area for the local volunteer marine rescue group.

Earlier this year DoT completed a $1.2 million staged upgrade of the launch facilities at Two Rocks nearly tripling the number of marked bays at the facility increasing from 38 to 99 and doubling its launching capacity by widening the ramp to accommodate two distinct lanes.

Traffic management measures to help queuing and ease congestion, installation of a central 50 meter floating jetty, realignment of the revetment wall, new paths, lighting and signage were also part of the improvement project which DoT delivered on time and under budget allowing for construction of the additional pontoon.
